I had a realization recently about how much I listen to drake and partynextdoor and how often I try not to put them on my monthly playlists (cause I feel like drake is on every single one) but then I thought why run from what I love. So, this is a playlist made almost entirely […]
My brother gifted me We Are the One’s We Have Been Waiting For by Alice Walker a few years ago for Christmas and I’ve reread it 3 times already. It’s a book that continues to teach you lessons and gives you many “ah ha” moments no matter the amount of times you read it. Different […]
Featuring music by Jamila Woods and Sango. Movies are Moonlight, Life of Pi and The Beasts of the Southern Wild. With an interview of the late Nina Simone from 1968.
